Halloween has arrived in Fortnite. The most recent patch introduced Fortnitemares, the annual Halloween event, which includes the ability to transform into a werewolf.
The Reality Tree now has a DJ, and players can perform a ritual to gain access to an item called “howler claws,” which results in the werewolf transformation.
(If you don’t play Fortnite, I promise that sentence makes sense.) When you equip the claws, you’ll gain a sense ability to find other players, a new melee attack, and a double jump. It sounds like the wraith-like abilities from the film 2020.
A new Zero Build version of the classic horde rush mode, the return of Halloween-themed items like candy and a pumpkin launcher, and a handful of quests to unlock free in-game items are also included in the update. Fortnitemares is available now through November 1st.
Fortnite’s latest season debuted a month ago, and it includes new features such as a metallic substance that can turn you into a chrome blob. With werewolves thrown in, Epic’s battle royale is as strange as it has ever been.
